Sec.  73.600  Turmeric.



    (a) Identity. (1) The color additive turmeric is the ground rhizome 

of Curcuma longa L. The definition of turmeric in this paragraph is for 

the purpose of identity as a color additive only, and shall not be 

construed as setting forth an official standard for turmeric under 

section 401 of the act.

    (2) Color additive mixtures made with turmeric may contain as 

diluents only those substances listed in this subpart as safe and 

suitable in color additive mixtures for coloring foods.

    (b) Uses and restrictions. Turmeric may be safely used for the 

coloring of foods generally, in amounts consistent with good 

manufacturing practice, except that it may not be used to color foods 

for which standards of identity have been promulgated under section 401 

of the act, unless the use of added color is authorized by such 

standards.

    (c) Labeling. The color additive and any mixtures intended solely or 

in part for coloring purposes prepared therefrom shall bear, in addition 

to the other information required by the act, labeling in accordance 

with the provisions of Sec.  70.25 of this chapter.

    (d) Exemption from certification. Certification of this color 

additive is not necessary for the protection of the public health, and 

therefore batches thereof are exempt from the certification requirements 

of section 721(c) of the act.
